mini goldendoodles for sale in utah Usually September is the worst month for fleas, but we use a once a month tablet called “comfortis”. This tablet prevents fleas from being an issue for our adult dogs. As your Goldendoodle puppy gets closer to six months of age, you can consider talking with your veterinarian about using a safe flea/tick dip rather than a topical flea treatment. What I have personally come to find is that you will have to use common sense and caution. Many veterinarians are not aware that topical flea and tick treatments are causing seizure issues for Goldendoodles, so they sell their clients these treatments. Later down the road, the client’s doodle will have a seizure and then the breeder receives a call due to the dog having a seizure. We have written about the issue before and this information is on our website at ; We just want all Goldendoodle owners to be aware of the fact that topical flea and tick treatments are not safe for the Goldendoodle dog regardless of where you have purchased your doodle. We suspect it is from the dog being sensitive to the pyrithin levels in the medication. We are not the only breeder who is hearing about this issue and it doesn’t matter where you have purchased your doodle. Used these topical treatments with extreme caution. What you should do if you believe your Goldendoodle is having an allergic reaction Parasites are annoying and they carry a wide variety of diseases but if you place a topical flea and tick treatment on your Goldendoodle, your dog could have a much bigger problem.

Remember, a puppy requires constant attention. The key to successful housebreaking is consistency; preventing "accidents" is key. Once a puppy soils the carpeting, it becomes much more difficult to train them out of that behavior. Here's a good rule of thumb to consider: a puppy can hold his bladder just one hour for every month they've been alive. For instance, a 3 month old puppy will need to empty his bladder every three hours!Before you adopt a Goldendoodle puppy, ask yourself if you are available to walk your dog several times throughout the day, and if you have the patience and commitment to wake up and take him out first thing every morning at the same time, and stick to a strict schedule. Of course, before you can walk him at all, you will need to train him to walk on a leash, which is a project in itself. On the other hand, an adult dog's bladder is already fully developed. Shelter dogs are often already housetrained and Goldendoodle rescue groups can tell you if their adult dogs for adoption are housebroken before they go into your home. You also have the advantage of knowing that your dog is physically able to "hold it" for several hours at a stretch. In most cases, adult dogs are by far easier to housebreak than puppies. You can teach an old dog new tricks!Puppy Behavior Sometimes Isn’t PleasantSure, Goldendoodle puppies are super cute, but simply put, puppies can be adorable, relentless machines of destruction.

Standard goldendoodles may take a month or so longer to reach that half way mark. The larger the dog, the longer growing takes. For mini goldendoodles, expect the weight to start leveling off between 7 10 months of age. Standard goldendoodles, like other large dog breeds, will grow for a longer period of time. A general estimate for standards is: multiply your puppy's weight at 4 months by 2 and add 5 10lbs. While this rule may work for many standards, it is not accurate with smaller sized goldendoodles who finish growing at a younger age. It's true.
